This album melds the very best of 80s soft pop-rock (!) with most of the songs coming in at under four minutes, incorporating catchy hooks, shimmering guitars and upbeat melodies, full of Gallic charm. If you love Phoenix but want to hear a less introspective, more chorus driven sound then this will do the trick. Plus this album has the best guitar solos I've heard in ages! Xavier de Rosnay from Justice along with Daft Punk's sound engineer Peter Franco are responsible for the album's precise production values - with a few quirks thrown in.

Produced fantastically by Xavier de Rosnay of Justice, every bass lick, drum hit, and guitar twang Jamaica make sound superb. It's not just the production that's great though, every song is catchy, funky and great to rock out to with fantastic lyrics to boot!
